Hi all,
I have tried finding info on exactly what the 'dry county' designation means in Corbin. Does this mean that there is no alcohol sales in Corbin, besides maybe an exemption for a restaurant to serve drinks with dinner? Is it ok to bring in alcohol to drink in someone's home or a hotel, or is there no drinking except with dinner?
I appreciate any help you can give. I tried using the search feature here, but nothing happened.

Corbin is dry, but according to this map (http://www.abc.ky.gov/NR/rdonlyres/6F31D2D3-E8EA-43C4-980A-EA6D9D752A5B/0/WetDryMap112607.pdf - broken link) you can get alcohol in restaurants that seat more than 100 (provided they offer alcohol). In general, you can bring your own alcohol into a dry county if it's for personal use and not for resale.

Alcohol is served in several restaurants that seat a certain number of people and the majority of the sales has to come from food and not alcohol. There are no liquor stores in the tri-county region surrounding Corbin.

I really don't understand how we still have "dry" counties in the state. Is there really that much of the population that supports these laws?

Maybe there is a reason some counties don't see growth.

Hi Gtownoe and all,
Here in Indiana the only places that can sell beer on Sunday are bars that serve food. I was in West Virginia once and asked was selling beer allowed on Sundays there and the cashier looked at me like I was crazy. She said she had never heard of states not selling alcohol on Sundays for carry out.

Because there are WAY WAY WAY too many Bible thumpers in this state who like to impose their beliefs on everyone. Funny thing is, it is the same people who go home after church and get the bottle out of the top shelf of the kitchen cabinet.
